CHRISTIAN STATEMENT OF FAITH
There is ONE God,
yet expressed in a Spiritual Trinity
known to us as the Father, the Son which is
Jesus, and the
Holy Spirit which is clearly revealed
in (1 John 5:7) ... Jesus is the
Word of God as revealed in (John 1:1 and John 1:14) ...
He is also the
Son of God as He was born of a
virgin, foretold in Bible Prophecy (Isaiah 7:14)
and revealed to Mary by an Angel.
Jesus, being part of the Trinity is a part of God.
Jesus came to earth to die for our sins. He was crucified, and while on
spoke where He proved yet again that He WAS the awaited Messiah
when He said,
My God, My God why
have you Forsaken me.
He was quoting scripture which predicted that they would do these very acts to the Lord
that they were doing at that time. This is called Prophecy.
He died after being hung on a Cross for six hours. At the time of His
death, He was taken to
Abraham's Bosom where He stayed for three days and three nights
and was resurrected on a SON-derful Sunday (Easter) Morning.
He was seen forty days (Acts 1:3) on earth before ascending to Heaven (Acts 1:10)
His followers continued spreading the Gospel and paid a dear price, even unto death,
as revealed in the New Testament. The New Testament is the result of a New Covenant
that God made with mankind in an attempt to rescue His children from sin and
Jesus was sinless and was a Sacrifice for mankind's sins which originated from the
Original Sin ... The Blood of Jesus cleanses away our sin when we repent of our sins and
accept the TRUTH by BELIEVING in JESUS. This is called GRACE ...
Therefore Faith is the primary ingredient, yet one should not assume that you are guaranteed
Salvation simply by belief in Jesus as we must overcome the Trials and Tribulation
that we will encounter. We will be tempted and hounded by
your adversary the
devil and the
evil spirits and
issues such as loneliness and divorce and anger and finances,
also gossip and depression and fear of death and lost love and being over weight, etc., etc.
This is known as
Spiritual Warfare. This continual battle oft times leaves us battered
and bruised in mind and heart and we cry out ... Why God and
Who Am I?
The TRUTH is ... We will fall down but we
must get up, ask forgiveness
all others and carry on. Prayer and
fasting are also essential
ingredients in the
Christian Walk. We fight the good fight of FAITH. We must defend our Faith.
Jesus will return for His bride on a day that nobody knows,
but we are to watch
for the Signs which were
prophesied of His Return as to be prepared.
This will occur
during the End Times. Many
will be taken up in what Christians call the
but there will be many who are Left Behind. Some will be brought through fire,
some will die for the cause, some will reach and teach others of the TRUTH of Jesus and
some will replenish the Earth after the End Times are over. (Psalms 37:11 - Matthew 5:5).
The End Times will have a three and a half year time period of false peace and then another
three and a half year time period where an evil world ruler will emerge and control all.
His title is Antichrist and he will portray himself to be the long awaited Messiah.
He will have a sidekick known as the False Prophet. There will be Two Witnesses
which will share TRUTH with others on earth during this three and a half year time period
and many will come to believe.
At the completion of the End Times there will be a great war between those who oppose God.
Jesus will come with His angels to war against them. This battle is known as Armageddon.
Jesus will conquer them with the Word of TRUTH. At which time the great deceiver
thrown into the Lake of Fire to be tormented forever.
IN SHORT ... OUR CHRISTIAN STATEMENT OF FAITH IS:
JESUS IS THE WAY ... FOLLOW HIM TO BE SAVED.
What we believe in, is ...
Take care and may our Father bless you and yours.
